Colourpop Mar Palette Review & Swatches

Hey babes,

So, it’s been forever I know but the makeup game has not stopped. If you want to catch up with me, see live swatches, unboxing and the likes check me out on Instagram @girlfabulousblog.

Anywho, lets chat about this beautiful palette presented to us by Colourpop Cosmetics. The Mar palette was presented as a duo and because I have so many palettes similar to the sister palette Sol I passed on that one. While Sol is super pretty, it was full of warm tone shades, that I already have something equivalent in my collection. Mar spoke to me because the colors are so bright and vibrant! I realized I have little to no color palettes in my whole collection. I love jewel tones.

I’m a huge fan of the Colourpop Brand. I’m here for a company that provides great quality products (i have a full line up). Let’s get to these swatches.

Description from R to L

These are finger swatches but with just one swipe. The pigmentation is amazing. I can’t say for sure that i could do a full look with this just palette. IMO, this palette could have used a deeper orange shade for transition in MY crease. Being that I’m of a deeper complexion, I need deeper shades for transition. Also, please note that this is my bare arm, there was no base underneath. Pretty sure I wasn’t even moisturized (NO JUDGEMENT). The mattes were a little harder to build than the shimmers but still great application:


Blendability: 8 out of 10

Final Thoughts:

This is a win for me. Even though this is a summer themed palette, there are no rules in makeup! I love it. The formula is on point, it blends like a dream and it’s AFFORDABLE!
